From one home to another you will find different water systems. Choosing between positive and negative head booster pumps comes down to the type of water system in yours. One thing that both of these options have in common is that they're both designed to be fitted to open-vented hot and cold water supplies.
● Positive head booster pumps - When a booster pump is installed, if it is gravity fed it'll usually require installing below the water tank. The distance below the tank is approximately 1 meter and is known as the head. This is where the term positive head booster pumps come in. Positive head booster pumps are the most common options.
● Negative head booster pumps - If you're asking yourself 'what is a negative head booster pump?' then you're not alone. It's quite simple though once it is explained. Negative head booster pumps are placed above a cold water tank, or level with them if needed, and draws water from the tank and forces it towards the shower.
